The Dr says more tummy time but not sure if it will be enough, I mentioned a sleep positioner but she did not think it is important.Answer Question

I have a niece and her head is flat also she is now 19 yrs. old the only time it was noticable was when she would wear pig tails other than that that is the way she stayed. Just have him wear his hair a tad long I guess. Don't point it out too much as he gets older he might get a complex.
But I can imagine how you feel, but he is healthy everywhere else correct? Just let it go....I guess.

Hold baby, tummy time, sleep positioner; basically do not keep baby in the same position for an extended period of time. Instead of putting baby in a car seat / carrier / bouncy / swing / crib either hold baby or tummy time or sit baby up and play, etc. They sell tummy time mats and they are worth the money. Boppy also has a tummy time boppy for baby, another great purchase. If it does get too bad they have helmets, doctors fit them and such, to get them back to 'normal' before it is permanent.
